Where I left over, Eric and I were doing a Top 10 Tour in Iceland, and we were ready for the best part, the walk on a glacier! This is the part of the tour that we would not have been able to do without the help of our tour guide from Extreme Iceland.
The glacier we visited was called Langjokull (the second largest glacier in Iceland, third largest in the world) and was only about a 45 minute drive from the Gullfoss waterfall. However, it did require a four wheel drive vehicle and the ride was definitely a bit bumpy. At one point we legit drove through a river. When we arrived at the lake, we had to put on even more clothes, basically a crazy snowsuit and a life jacket. This was really just to keep us warm on the boat ride, it was not necessary for actually walking on the glacier.
The ride back to Reykjavik was less eventful than the way out, but we did enjoy a stop or two including a collapsed volcano!
By the time we arrived back at our apartment, we were completely wiped out but happy with our successful day in Iceland. We would definitely recommend others take this tour to enjoy a lot of what Iceland has to offer in a short time.
I will be back next with our Austrian adventures. Any questions about Iceland? I would love to go back, but next time I may have to brave even colder weather to enjoy the northern lights.
